Its hard being a sports fan in MN. But the Vikings sure did look good. For what I seen in the last few weeks, we should win out our schedule. As of this week, the Vikings are in control of the second wild card. Its hard to believe they turned things around like this.

As for the band wagon jumpers, remember this is MN, dont get your hopes up to high smirk.gif. It sure is easier watching the games this way! Jackson is starting to look like a quarterback! And just maybe Childress isnt as big of an (Contact Us Please) as everyone thought, but I doubt that grin.gif.

Go Vikes!!

They have an excellent "D" but T Jack STILL hasn't impressed me, that pick he threw was a horrible decision, there wasn't a Vike within 7 yards

Ya T-Jack isnt impressing, just alot better then he was before. You cant complain about the rushing defense. Top notch!

He's done his job very well the last 3 weeks, end of story. His QB rating against Oakland and NYG was over 101 and that only went up yesterday. What would you like him too do? He made countless big 3rd down plays and kept the chains moving with his arm and legs on 5 straight TD drives. How anyone could have watched that game yesterday and can say Jackson didnt look is beyond me. Oh wait, i do know how, its called bias. You dont like the guy and it doesnt matter what he does. I could understand when you were trashing on the guy after 4 or 5 weeks but not after the last 3 games. He has done more than just not make mistakes. He is engineering scoring drives. Of course a running game helps. But they had the running game there when they were 2-5. The difference now at 6-6 is plays being made in the passing game. The QB throwing darts and the recievers hanging onto the ball.

I agree, he made some rocket passes right were they needed to be, if any where else they would have been picked off. Maybe he's a instant reaction type athlete who does better when he goes on instinct. Cause all his good passes were on quick hitters. I'ld like to see more of the same out of T-jack and pass judgement at the end off the season as for now, he is progressing like any qb, looks good then not so good, hopefully good is here for awhile.

Hes doing exactly what hes being asked too. Hes not being asked too throw 35 passes and 300 yards with 4 TD's. He doesnt have too. Hes being asked too compliment the running game and keep the chains moving and hes done it well the last couple games.

I think he is improving every game. Give the guy a break, he hasn't even played a full season yet.

I will be the first to admit that he is improving. I have slammed him before, but he is improving.

Could it be that Childress's simplified offense is starting to work and the QB is learning?

That is another person that gets no respect, Childress. Like I said before, he is a good coach. Even if he doesn't make the playoffs, to finish .500 or so with such a inexperianced QB says something.

Don't get your hopes up.. It's the Vikings!! Do I enjoy watching them play well, yes.. will I get my hopes up after watching them win a few games, no..

They'll more than likely find a way to screw it up as usual. If not, then Go Vikes!!

Williamson is a horrible reciever, but he is fast, I wonder if they can train him in as a d-back, then he can only drop interceptions smirk.gif.

The Vikes are on a roll, they have an easy schedule in front of them, they have a good shot at the playoffs. If Jackson can improve a little more, the Vikes could beat any team out there. This team isnt missing much, to be a championship team. I know this is the Vikings, and they will find away to loose. If you look back at this whole season, as bad as it was, we have been in every game until the end except for 1. Thats only because the packers cheat grin.gif. I dont have my hopes up to high, just saying, it could happen!

This year 9-7 should get us in the playoffs. Although if we cant win the last 4 games, we arent going to do anything in the playoffs anyhow. Although it would be nice to make it, and knock the packers out of the playoffs again grin.gif.

I will admit it is nice to see the Vikings playing well. Can it last? After the Lions game on the Vikings Radio Network everyone says next weeks game should be a win for the Vikes! If they can go and prove everyone right by beating a team we SHOULD beat then we may have a good shot. (How many times have we gone in to a very winnable game and walked out with a loss!?!) Think of the Cardinals in Week 16 a few years back - with the playoffs on the line. If the Vikings can take one game at a time and Jackson makes the plays and decisions he made against the Lions, then we could be Playoff bound! - Yet if they lose, the Vikings bandwagoners may fall back off. OH WELL - FOR NOW, GO VIKES!

Here is what the NFL network thinks of the 6-6 Vikings playoff chances!

How can you not be impressed by Jackson? He's 7-2 as a starter!!! What do you want from this guy???

You got SF on the road. Its a bad team that should be beat. Chicago and Washington at home. Both teams in the same caliber of the vikings. But at home you have too like their chances. Denver on the road is interesting. I believe Denver still has the worst rushing defense in the NFL. At least they did 3 weeks ago. If Jackson plays like he has the last couple games i think they'll be OK to go. The line is playing phenomenal and i would think that would continue.

Dude, Vikings played the Giants and Lions..... Giants are not a good team, especially with Plaxico Burress being injured and very slow, and Brandon Jacobs as well as Derrick Ward out as well.. NOt to mention, Giant's leading defensive rusher is out as well. With all these players being either injured or not playing, do you really consider Vikings winning over the Giants as impressive? If P Burress and Brandon Jacobs were healthy, Vikings would not have won. Any team can beat the decimated Giants right now, probably even the Dolphins...

As for detroit, always starts out strong in the beginning of the season and ends weak towards the end of the season... Detroit has not been doing much against any team these past couple of weeks... Detroit is not even good... Thus, Vikings beating Detroit is not impressive... Oh yes, Vikings beating Oakland is not impressive as well..

Im definitely not jumping on the Vikings bandwagon.

Besides the green bay blow out, the viks were in position to win every game including dallas. don't you go tell me that we won the game just because the giants were missing a few players. if you have forgotten, we have a very good defense. you were probably to busy watching reruns of desperate housewives to even bother paying attention to the football game anyways. please spare us with you ever-so-lame insite.

The bandwagon won't miss ya.

OK...so the Lions and NYG are bad. What is not impressive about blowing out bad teams. The Vikes ran 'em both right off the field. Could they have done something different with those teams?

I'm going to have to agree with the last few guys. A good team should be able to blow out bad teams. Look at the Patriots, they've been doing it - although teams are getting closer to beating them. Provided the Vikings competition hasn't been that great and the last 4 games are all against below .500 teams. YET winning builds confidence and a load of confidence with this team may be enough. A team winning 7 in a row, not saying it will happen, but if it does then they'll be rolling with confidence.

THE VIKINGS COULD BE THE COLORADO ROCKIES of the NFL this year. Sure the Rockies didn't win it all but they were fun to watch and made it to the World Series! (Not saying the Vikes are Super Bowl contenders, but its proof what winning and confidence can do!)

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....
